Life comes in so many stages. First, there’s the baby stage. Spit-up, diaper accidents, messy crafts and dirt (lots of dirt) are telltale signs. Those were the days of doing daily laundry. As my kids got older, their stains became more complex: grass stains from sports, blood from scraped knees and food stains from my messy eater. When they become teens, it will be makeup products or grease from working on bikes (later cars) and things like that. And the adults of the house, well sometimes we’re messy too. I see a lot of dirt and grime from automotive projects from my other half and sometimes my lunch rush leaves me with a day-long reminder. Saving our clothes? That’s no sweat.
My kids seem to find stains in the most unusual ways. My challenge is eradicating them. Take my daughter for example. An afternoon walk around the neighborhood, capturing those crazy little characters everyone is after, somehow resulted in chocolate on her skirt. Of course, I didn’t know about the chocolate until days later when I found the evidence in the laundry. She stopped and had ice cream down the street. The mystery of the chocolate stain was solved and OxiClean™ Max Force Trigger saved the day.
My son is a magnet for anything dirty. If there is dirt to be found, he will find it. We spend a lot of time at the race track in the summer and that lends us to some interesting stains. What did we have for lunch? His shirt will probably tell you. Food dropped on the bleachers? My son will probably sit in it. Someone spilled oil in one of the race trailers? My son will probably walk through it, wipe it on his clothes or maybe sit in it too. He is all boy and his clothes tell the tale. My OxiClean™ Max Force Foam and Max Force Gel Stick get a workout thanks to him.
My other half is a car guy, and anyone that has a car guy knows how hard oil and grease are to tackle. And it’s not just little spots we’re talking about either. No, they end up covered. For tough jobs like this, OxiClean™ Max Force Foam is my go-to. I love that I can treat most of his stains when they happen, but don’t need to run the washer immediately. I can wait a day or two and toss in a regular load.
Stains happen for all of us every day, but they don’t have to mean the end of the line for our clothes. While some stains are more common than others, OxiClean™ has products to battle them all. Each of the products below works on all stains, but some info on which products are proven to fight which common stains the most effectively.
